Issac came into rescue at about 12 weeks old (he’s about 14 weeks now 12 July). For one so young he’d already built up a bit of a complicated history. We got him when someone was asking a dog rescue to take him in.
Whatever has happened in the past he’s a very friendly, loving boy who wants to snuggle, and to play and be friends with the other cats here. Sadly the other cats aren’t returning the favour. The older cats are fed up of it being kitten season …. and the other kittens he’s mixing with are too small for it to be fair play. He’s clearly just wanting to play … and with another friendly older kitten or young cat he’d most likely be fine.
Isaac has been for his health check today and started his vaccinations. We’re pretty sure all is fine healthwise … though it was difficult for Dr Fran to hear his heart above the sounds of purring. He’s almost big enough to be neutered so we’ll get him neutered in a couple of weeks time. He’ll be ready for adoption early August.
He’ll be best staying indoors until he’s bigger .. about 6 months old maybe. After that he’d like a safe garden he can explore and run off his kitten energy in. We do strongly recommend that cats are kept indoors during hours of darkness, with access to a litter tray, for the rest of their lives for reasons of safety.
Isaac should fit quite happily into any family who are around quite a bit of the time and can give him plenty of love and attention. I think with careful introductions he’d be ok with other pets, and may indeed be happier having another fur person around for company.
We always homecheck prior to adoption and ask a minimum adoption donation of £75 for a neutered kitten. There’s more about our adoption process here: http://www.8livescatrescue.org/adoption-process.html and you may find some more photos and stories about him (and our other cats) on our blog: https://8livescatrescue.wordpress.com/ and facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/8Lives/
